Atlantic storm strengthens into Tropical Storm Fay, N.J. under tropical storm warning

Updated 9:09 PM; Today 5:09 PM
by Len Melisurgo | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

A cluster of thunderstorms off the coast of North Carolina has become more organized and its winds have strengthened late Thursday afternoon, prompting the National Hurricane Center to upgrade the system to a tropical storm and place eastern sections of New Jersey under a tropical storm warning.

In other words you can’t support your statements, and attempt to deny the proof I offer in links to state provided data, lol. BILLIONS of dollars. Luckily even NJ Democrats are beginning to insist JC taxpayers begin to pay their fair share.

A local property tax rate by itself is a meaningless piece of information.

That is the second and last time I will write this statement. It just exemplifies fiscal illiteracy.

You are better off spending your time educating yourself on the topic, than posting nonsensical and irrelevant, slap dash text (ie Billions as in over the course of years, plural.)

Here is the state list of tax rates for suburban Morris County. Compare those numbers to JC, whose rate is much lower at 1.540. The difference is mostly that suburban towns get a tiny amount of school funding back from Trenton.

For one year, JC taxpayers received $575 million for schools from Trenton. The link above shows previous years, showing JC has gotten BILLIONS from state taxpayers, while paying well under 20% of the costs of educating its own kids.

Can you provide a link proving your claim that JC sends more $ to Trenton than it receives? Because I proved mine with data from the state database.

Very selective, chery picking post. And the "downtown" locations you cite are folks who commute TO Jersey City for employment - you know Jersey City's downtown waterfront properties. How much affordable housing do those towns have...Answer really not much.

With that they, the NIMBYs and segragists really should keep a lid on whining about having Trenton fund urban school districts.


Receiving Billions is just not correct. That is easy to dismiss as the combined school and municipal budgets is barely a single billion. Jersey City does generate more state tax revenue than it receives.

Re: Evict a tenant of illegal (not zoned) apartment

You are opening yourself up to some pretty hefty fines and a "reward" to your tenant - something like six times the monthly rent and her moving expenses if you move forward with the eviction:

caselaw

Page 106 - Relocation Assistance You'll Owe

You would be far better off trying to settle this amicably between yourselves, particularly if she doesn't know the law. Tell her you will buy her out if she moves in [set the time]. She cleans out, gives you the key, you give her a check and change the lock. Have a private written statement as vague as possible (I'd consult a lawyer). And don't rent the unit again.

You are staring at a whole shi*bag of trouble if ANYTHING happens at this address right now. Your insurance won't handle a claim on an illegal unit - and rightfully so. It's just not worth it. I can think of two cases right off the top of my head where young people died - one in JC due to carbon monoxide poisoning and the other in Bayonne - both in illegal apartments. And your unit isn't "technically not legal" - it's just plain illegal.

Much of sales tax in JC is half the state average at 3%. Do you really think Newport Mall generates anything near what the Mall at Short Hills or Riverside Square does,
lol? And the dollar stores and bodegas in JC compared to, say, downtown Summit or Rudgewood or Princeton? Anyone thinking JC contributes more to Trenton than it receives back in school support, Section 8 funding, etc has no grip on reality. In school support alone JC has gotten BILLIONS from suburban taxpayers. And the result are some of the worst schools in NJ.

And the local schools that suburban taxpayers fund through local real estate taxes is because they get a pittance back from Trenton (from their income taxes and sales taxes) because towns like JC and Newark get BILLIONS.

Evict a tenant of illegal (not zoned) apartment
#15
Newbie
Newbie


We own a 2 family home in New Jersey and we made the mistake of renting our bastment out to a friend of a friend that needed a place to stay. The apartment is in great shape but is technically not legal because our home isn't zoned for it.

The tenant is a 21 year old 1st time renter who we thought was an angel in the beginning but since has broken her lease several times with long term guests, throwing parties in the backyard without permission, the list goes on. When she moved in she knew the apartment wasn't "legal" but didn't care, she just needed a place to stay.

My question is this - how can we evict her when the covid19 thing is done? She is currently on month 6 of a year long lease. Can we "report" ourselves to the city, get a notice from them to cease the residency, hence forcing an eviction?

Any advice is welcome!

LOL. In a city as large as ours, yes it is. On both accounts. We pay a significantly lower tax rate than almost every city in this state.


It’s this very problem, which everyone called Yvonne crazy on, is why tax abatements were absolutely improper with regards to how much they were used.

Honest question: who do you think pays the portion of the budget that we don’t? (Spoiler alert, most of the suburban taxpayers in this state) You do understand what “subsidy” means right? You do get that SOMEbody else pays for most of our failing schools in addition to paying for their own, right? You do get that we’ve been getting a mostly free ride for a long time while Nero Fulop fiddled despite being warned about this for years, right?

Not even Charlie from society hill (aka neverleft) can spin his way out of this mess.


Comparing solely property tax rates is meaningless information. If you weren't innumerate in public finance, you would know better.

Let's ask your question another way, who pays for affordable housing for those and that being a majority of suburban towns? Answer: Jersey City does.

So you can lament the rest of the state paying more in taxes to fund urban school districts, but you then have to consider who willingly houses the poor and their children attending urban school districts like Jersey City, Newark, Patterson, and Elizabeth.

Many towns skirt their affordable housing responsibility. Some get out of such by paying Jersey City directly, like tony Upper Saddle River.

By the way, state spennding on public education is a small slice of the state budget pie. Over half the state's budget goes to pension and healthcare.

Also, most of the state's revenue comes from sales and income taxes. This includes businesses and residents in Jersey City that pay such to the State Treasurer.

How much does your suburban town's businesses generate in State tax revenue? Answer not as much as Jersey City. Maybe it is not fair that Jersey City sends more tax revenue to Trenton than other suburban towns. In other words, Jersey City is a net benefit to Trenton. It provides more tax revenue to Trenton than it takes. You cannot say that is true of many suburban municipalities.

When you write suburban tax payers, their local property and school taxes go to pay for local services and local education. None go directly to Jersey City and other Abbott districts.

Yes. I was agreeing with you and noting how you’ve been right about abatements this whole time. But these clowns on this board who kicked you for it only showed their complete lack of what’s going on.

As an example, a senior living in an one bedroom pays $2,200 a month in rent. Maybe that tenant only pays $300 a month based on their income, the rest comes from taxpayers. There are people paying rent in non-tax abated buildings paying similar rent and their landlord use that rent to pay school taxes. It is a scam.

Bayonne residents pay more than twice what JC residents do. JC needs to pay its fair share. JC has bled suburban taxpayers of billions of dollars to support its schools, which are awful.

I'll give a little bit of credit to Murphy for finally trying to correct that, but JCBOE also needs to cut its budget!

$736 million to educate 29,255 students, for over $25,100 per student. The JCBOE gets $136,504,704 from property taxes and $30,692,633 from the awful payroll tax that should be unconstitutional. JC taxpayers contribute 22.7% to the school budget.

The average school district pays what? $15,000 per student and 40-50% from local sources.

JC Taxpayers pay enough. Cut the budget!
